A man has been hospitalized with a leg injury after BASE jumping off the Hansen Bridge.

The Times-News reports that Sgt. Matt West of the Jerome County Sheriff’s Office says 43-year-old Servesh Dhadwal had landed on a rock island near the bottom of the bridge Sunday afternoon.

A helicopter arrived at the scene shortly after and transported the man to the hospital. Initial reports indicated that Dhadwal had a broken leg, but West could only confirm that the man had suffered a lower-leg injury.

An update on his condition is unknown.
